Buckner had four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 48-32 loss to the Rams.
Buckner was unable to record a sack for a third straight game, but that shouldn't take anything away from the tremendous improvement he showed overall. The 24-year-old finishes the 2018 season with 67 tackles and a career-high 12 sacks. Those pass-rush results are especially impressive coming from an interior lineman, finishing only behind Defensive Player of the Year candidate Aaron Donald (20.5 sacks) amongst defensive tackles. Buckner's ascension into IDP relevance this season should make him one of the few players at the position worth considering for fantasy.
Buckner had three solo tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery in Sunday's loss to the Bears.
Buckner didn't quite match his 11-tackle, two-sack performance of last week, but it was yet another productive outing for the defensive tackle. The 24-year-old has 63 total tackles and 12 sacks in his breakout season.
Buckner recorded 11 tackles (seven solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 26-23 win over Seattle.
The Seahawks ran the ball 35 times, allowing Buckner to rack up the tackles to set a new high mark for the season. The 24-year-old added two more sacks, bringing his mark up to 11 on the campaign. Buckner has developed into one of the league's top defensive tackles, putting himself in the IDP conversation at a position that generally struggles to create consistent value. The lineman should be busy against another run-heavy team in Chicago on Sunday.
Buckner recorded seven tackles (three solo) and a pair of sacks in Sunday's 43-16 loss to Seattle.
Buckner continues to be a bright spot amongst an otherwise sorry San Francisco defensive unit. The 24-year-old has already matched his combined sack total of nine over the past two seasons, and he is blossoming into one of the league's top pass-rushing defensive tackles.
Buckner recorded five tackles (all solo) and a sack in Sunday's 27-9 loss to the Buccaneers.
Buckner experienced a bit of a sack dry spell after racking up 3.5 through the first two games of the season, but he has returned to form with 2.5 sacks over the last three games. The pass-rushing lineman's 39 tackles are a step back from the last two seasons (134 combined tackles), but he has also stepped that aspect of his game up recently with 10 (five solo) over the last two weeks. Russell Wilson will be a tougher assignment to bring down compared to Jameis Winston, but Buckner could see increased tackle opportunities against a run-heavy scheme that likes to attack defenses up the middle.
